Elbrys and Mindbloom Team Up for New Mobile Health App

Leading a healthy life has never been easier than it is now, thanks to the help of mobile health apps. Elbrys and Mindbloom have joined forces to develop a health application that will interact with various third-party devices. The application by Mindbloom will work with the Common Senses Gateway by Elbrys and the application will interact with health-related wireless devices, such as pedometers, blood pressure machines and digital scales.

Past solutions by Mindbloom have included the Bloom iPhone app, which utilizes images and music to inspire productivity, JUICE, which helps users track nutrition, exercise and sleep habits, and Life Game, which is touted as a “fun, simple, and effective way to improve the quality of your life” by helping users decide what is important, discover what motivates them and take meaningful action. Brent Poole, the CEO of Mindbloom, gives the credit to Elbrys, “Elbrys has done the hard work in integrating and normalizing data from popular biometric devices, as well as the more condition-specific monitoring devices, and provides access to that data through a single API.”

Anthony Delli Colli, the vice president of marketing at Elbrys, describes this collaboration as another way that Mindbloom’s innovative multiplatform wellness applications engage consumers to “live healthier lives and reach their personal goals.” In a recent statement, he said, “This collaboration allows us to showcase the incredible user experiences that are possible when good application design and powerful device integration technology are combined.” CommonSenses supports standards-based IEEE 11703-20601 medical device support, Continua Certified and ANT+ compliant software and personal area network supporting.

Elbrys and Mindbloom will be demonstrating the result of their collaboration in the Games for Health pavilion at the 2012 mHealth Summit in Washington, D.C. For anyone who is working toward a health goal, this promising new app is certain to become a much-used favorite.
